Join Keep St. Pete Lit, a local organization that supports the literary community, for a book club connecting the visual and literary arts. Each month’s featured book will relate to the MFA’s collection or special exhibitions. The group meets in the Bayview Room and discusses the book of the month.
Virginia Woolf’s Orlando continues to be ever contemporary. Orlando begins the novel as an Elizabethan era nobleman and awakes three centuries later as a modern woman in the 1920s. As you follow the journey of this fanciful character, compare works in the collection with the descriptions of society and gender roles in the novel.
Free with Museum admission, which is only $5 after 5 pm on Thursdays.
